Aims and Scope

Who we are and What we do?


The Philippine Journal of Endo-laparoscopic Surgery (PJELS) is a peer-reviewed local journal focusing on minimally invasive surgery (MIS). It is published online annually.  We aim to showcase local experience and knowledge on this evolving field and to become the forum for the discussion and the exchange of ideas in Surgical innovation, practice and Research. We are open to all surgical and endoscopic specialties willing to collaborate what expertise they have that will be relevant to our practice and benefit our patients.
